ANE 2019 - Change the Charity

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!

We, the undersigned, demand that the Board of Directors of Anthro New England (“ANE”) change the charity recipient of convention proceeds from an organization that does material harm to many attendees and the community at large. As people affected by racism, homophobia, transphobia, misogyny, and ableism, and allies to those who experience those and other oppressions, policing as an institution, as it currently exists, is dangerous to our continued safety and livelihood. We demand that a new charity be chosen in lieu of the current charity as soon as possible, and that that choice be communicated openly and transparently with the community.

We suggest the following charities as alternatives:

Bridge Over Troubled Waters


Youth on Fire

Pine Street Inn

Rosie’s Place

Boston Animal Rescue League
